, back in d.c., his nominee for secretary of defense chuck hagel is at the center of a senate showdown. even senator john mccain now backing away from his no filibuster stance of weeks past. the majority leader harry reid took to the floor of the last hour to make this impassioned plea. >> in less than two hours, our country will be without a secretary of defense. there is never in the history of the country been a filibuster of a defense secretary nominee. never. but it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense. >> debate on chuck hagel is not over. i am going to fight the idea of jamming somebody through. i'm going to hit you and keep hitting you. >> every republican there voted against moving the hagel nomination out of committee. there has to be a reason for that. why is it we're having to rush in to the confirmation. >> so just two days after the president's call to action to congress on gun control, nra ceo wayne lapierre is expected to give his decision on the state of the union tonight. hold on to your hats, i

familiar with the washington environment. let's start with the chuck hagel filibuster situation. senator mitch mcconnell said, i think the president is entitled to an up or down. that is simple majority vote on nominations, both to his cabinet and to the executive branch and also to the judiciary, clearly the republicans have somewhat changed their tune on the that. but if we do see, as we're seeing now, a sort of filibuster on nominees is this going to be the new normal now in washington? >> the consistency is not a virtue any longer, but what i'm surprised about with respect to the senate actions here, i serve there had the last 189 years, left two years ago, i served with chuck hagel, he served there 12 years and i'm very surprised that people who served with him in his own caucus, he caucused with them every week, they know him as a squad leader and infantry man who was twice wounded, he has two purple hearts by the way. they're suggesting somehow he's unworthy? it's unbelievable to me, every time you think this is sort of the nth degree of gridlock, i hope you dpind enough republica
the nomination of chuck hagel as they threaten to do. they did it successfully etted yesterday for the time being. but first, this is the full court press. >> om this friday, other headlines making news, president obama did what any good man would do for valentine's day. took his wife out to dinner. >> i thought you didn't celebrate valentine's day. >> not any good man except myself. i had franks and beans on the couch in front of the t.v. f it was perfect. i love it. a little mustard. >> come on. get with your thing here? >> what? he asked. >> bill: i don't want to hear about franks and beans i want to hear about obama and where did they go for dinner? >> i am about to tell you if you stop interrupting me. this is my two minutes. >> bill: oh oh. this show. >> we want to critically acclaimed jose andre's mini bar. it only takes six people per seating, not too far from the white house. no word on what they ate yet, but 20-course meals there. >> mini. >> they are mini plates. 20 of them. >> it might be the most exclusive restaurant in washington, d.c. >
along party lines to move chuck hagel's defense secretary nomination to the full senator. the senator combat veteran and wildly successful businessman will need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster from his own party. here is leader mitch mcconnell mcconnell's logic. >> sometimes you want to kill a nomination. there are a number of members of the committee who feel that the quest for information has not yet been met. >> michael: is that guy ever ever smiled? he said he has not disclosed more of his income. harry reid said he's planning to build a vote for hagel later on this week. in other nominations reid seems to be playing air traffic controller. >> we need to get to brennan. we have jack lew. we have cordray and getting that done. >> michael: those are read anything but smooth sailing. we have l. joy williams and joe williams, in case you're wondering they're not related. i thank both williamss for being here. >> so far as we know. >> michael: we got to bond this right away guys. we got to brand it right away. joe, i want to talk to you about chuck hagel main republican senator repor
. the senate will need 60 votes to end a filibuster on defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. republican senator james inhofe of oklahoma is leading the charge to block hagel. harry reid scheduled the vote to end the filibuster for friday. >> this is the first time in the history of our country that a presidential nominee for secretary of defense has been filibustered. what a shame. >> howard, is hagel, is the nomination in trouble? >> a little bit. i think in the end it will get through. but i think this a way, chuck hagel has kind of become the pinata for republicans, because he is within reach. president obama is not. president obama is on the right side politically on most of these political issues. the republicans can't touch him, and they know it. the only person they can whack right now is chuck hagel. i mean, chuck hagel is a perfectly acceptable defense secretary. and privately, most republicans would say the same thing. but for a whole host of reasons, the only person that the republican right can go after right now is hagel, and they're going to do it. >> yeah. >> and i think
that they thought they had, and that's why we were able to get the debt ceiling extended. >> chuck hagel had a pretty rough ride at his confirmation hearings. >> were you correct or incorrect. >> my reference to the -- >> are you going to answer the question, senator hagel? >> he seemed to lose some of the republican support he may have had. are you still confident after that performance that the democrats will stand behind him and he'll get confirmed? >> sure. this is a short interview, but if you interviewed me for eight hours like they interviewed him in the senate this week, you and i would both glove up a little bit. so chuck hagel is a fine man. he was a good senator. i served with him. he's a republican. that should be a plus. we need more, and i think he will be an outstanding, terrific secretary of defense. >> some of your fellow democrats seem concerned though by what they saw as a shaky performance. >> this was eight hours. give the guy a break. i thought he did pretty good. >> your incoming chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, senator robert menendez, is now review
, breaking news in an unprecedented, shocking move. republicans have filibustered a final vote on chuck hagel, president obama's pick to head the defense department. just four republicans join 54 democrats to support a vote on the nomination. now, you mugs know this is the first time in american history that a defense secretary nominee has been filibustered. forced to clear a 60 vote threshold. the president himself responded just minutes ago. >> chuck hagel, who, by the way, was a member of the republican caucus, a colleague of all of these folks who the republican leader mitch mcconnell and others consistently praised when he was still in the senate, has two purple stars -- two purple hearts, was an extraordinary soldier, was the head of the u.s.o., served on the senate floor relations committee. he is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. and the notion that we would see an unprecedented filibuster, just about unprecedented. we've never had a secretary of defense filibustered before. there's nothing in the constitution that says that somebody should get 60 votes. the republican

better for chuck hagel to be confirmed as defense secretary, perhaps as early as next week. although some lawmakers are softening their criticism. tough opposition continues on capitol hill. >> yeah. >> in a letter, 15 republican senators urged for hagel to withdraw his nomination including marco rubio and ted cruz. the letters read, in part, "while we respect senator hagel's honorable military service in the interest of national security, we respectfully request that you withdraw his nomination. it would be unprecedented for a secretary of defense to take office without the broad base of bipartisan support and confidence needed to serve effectively in this critical position. ted cruz at it again, with respect, with respect, with respect. in the last 50 years, no other secretary of defense has been confirmed with more than three members voting against him and in the entire history of the position, no one has been confirmed with more than 11 no votes." >> that's sort of circular logic. you could make that argument. democrats could do that to any republican. if we just get 20 or 30 against
